Richwood Edition: Whistle Punk Grill & Taphouse
One of the absolute coolest places I've been to in West Virginia is in Richwood.
Whistle Punk Grill & Taphouse looks like it was plucked from a super hip and trendy neighborhood and plopped in downtown Richwood.
There's some really cool outdoor dining with adorable lighting. And there's beautiful decor inside that makes it feel edgy, yet warm.
The menu has so many delicious items, I struggled to choose.
Ultimately, I went with the gnocchi with grilled pork - pan-fried gnocchi, topped with sauteed spinach and gorgonzola cream sauce served with a grilled pork tenderloin.
To top it all off, the sweet owner came and chatted with me about the restaurant. I mentioned how I've always wanted to be in the Cherry River Navy (I discovered this from another friend thought it was fate because we have the same initials), and she was an admiral!! She literally arranged paperwork for me right then and there, got me sworn in and even got me official t-shirts. I cannot say enough amazing things about this restaurant, these people and this sense of community. I can't wait to go back!
